Affirmative action has been and continues to be the flashpoint of
America's civil rights agenda. Yet while the affirmative action
literature is voluminous, no comprehensive account of its major
legal and public policy dimensions exists. Samuel and William M.
Leiter examine the origin and growth of affirmative action, its
impact on American society, its current state, and its future
antidiscrimination role, if any. Informed by several different
disciplines -- law, history, economics, sociology, political
science, urban studies, and criminology -- the text combines the
relevant legal materials with analysis and commentary from a
variety of experts. This even-handed presentation of the subject of
affirmative action is sure to be a valuable aid to those seeking to
understand the issue's many complexities.
